Salaam, Dear Bothers,
Please, based on the islamic sciences can you advice me on what books to read. I have read some books on Islam and I have a few at home that i havent read. I've purchased a Quran Translation from Darus Salam Publishers. The Quran has been translated by Dr. Muhammed Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali and Dr.Muhammed Muhsin Khan, do you know anything about them. whether they are Salafis and whether its good to read them. If not can you advise me something better, Adhering/using the transmission of knowledge from our prophet (pbuh) to the Sahabas to the Thabi'yins and to the four great imams. This will be the foudation for all my studies.
Please can you recommend me any basic to advanced books on Aqidah, Fiqh, Tassawuf, Islamic History including the times before the Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) the times after his death up to Islam in modern times.
Please recommend books also on the Seera of our beloved Prophet (pbuh) and any good books on Tawheed.
Please recommend any good websites for good authentic sources on Islam, however I do prefer books instead. Any good bookstores on the internet where i can purchase good books, lectures.
One of the reasons why I'm so keen to learn is, InshaAllah next year I will be studying for an MA in Islamic Studies, so I thought if I can learn some of the Sciences, I think I'll be in a better position next year , ahead of my student colleagues.
I hope Allah rewards you for your advice and guidance.
Jazak Allahu Khairan.
